If you want to learn how to work with fine silver metal clay or need a refresher on forgotten techniques, this is the class for you. Session one will focus on basic techniques, with several simple earring designs, and cover rolling, forming, shaping, and refining, as well as repairs, torch firing, and finishing Session two will focus on layered clay embellishments and unique textures created from everyday objects, while the project increases in complexity with a patchwork pendant and bail. Intermediate techniques such as reinforcing joints, sealing layered seams, and reconstituting dried clay will be discussed, along with kiln firing.
 
At the end of class, not only will you be well equipped to create distinctive silver clay pieces, but you will also know how to use metal clay in conjunction with more traditional metalsmithing techniques.
